Seafood
A lot has changed since 1982; but despite Fort Lauderdale’s evolution, one restaurant on the Intracoastal has been there every step of the way. With its dockside views, fresh seafood, and lively events — all served up in a relaxed environment — Shooters Waterfront is a Florida icon. There’s a reason behind our longevity: We invite you to see for yourself.

I love it there! The waiter was so nice and friendly! Short guy with a curly ponytail! I can’t remember his name but so nice and friendly! Food was amazing! Manager allowed us time to enjoy our seats although other guest tried to rush us out! I thought that was nice I’d him! I love shooters!

Fantastic meal. We sat out by the canal and had a marvelous meal. Spent 2.5 hours there and the waitress never made us feel like we had to give up our table. I had an egg white omelet and my friends had the lobster rolls. We had endless mimosas and boy were they endless!

I had a 1:30 reservation. After trying to find the place and then waiting for the parking attendant we entered the restaurant at 1:40. Dafne, the hostess, told me our table was given away because we were late. “We only hold the table for 15 minutes”, she said, I replied well then we still have 5 minutes, don’t we? She took two other reservations before a table was ‘cleaned’ for us, and I felt that we were not being treated kindly by her!
Thankfully, once we were seated and greeted by our server, Thomas, things got better.
The food was delicious. Fresh oysters, if a bit pricey, we’re worth the wait. Delicious lobster salad and tuna poke with continued excellent service on a delightful deck overlooking the intracoastal waterway made the experience worthwhile!

Requested table and to sit outside in the Opentable notes of reservation.. when we get there they asked booth or table and inside or out (guess they don’t read opentable notes) service was attentive, food was very good. Disappointed in the bar.. asked for a Manhattan and they did not have the ingredients for that, asked for Irish coffee at the end of the night and it was not hot and the bar ran out of whip cream.. the scenery is worth the trip as well as the food

Very good. So much better than the three other times I was there where we had tables near very loud guests—-once next to a party of about 25+ and they were literally standing between our seats drinking and yelling the entire meal etc! My guests loved it! Great performers too

What started out as a negative experience was quickly rectified by a manager. He showed empathy and addressed the situation quickly. Previous experiences were amazing and service was spot-on so I couldn't hold this against them. Will return.

The food was horrible. The buffet was a $9.99 buffet at best not $40. Salad greens and dressing were not on ice. Scrambled eggs were clearly artificial eggs so was crab meat. Vegetables were were soggy and laced with garlic. Poor selection . Ham station at 2pm was obviously out for hours, dried and looked horrible. Nothing good to say about the meal. Would never return.

Felt a little “rushed” by waiter, even tho we were seated an hour + before they were busy. There were several empty tables of the waiters by us for most of our dinner. Overall service was fine & food, as always was great.

My husband and I travel to the area once a month from Chicago. This has become one of our favorites! We have never experienced a disappointment from the very large selection on the menu. Don’t cheat yourself the Baked Alaska is superb and a must try desert!
The staff is friendly and although this place is always crowded the service never suffers!
